DC Comics’ Ace Porter Teams Up for UFC 181

Perhaps a long time coming, the UFC is finally taking a step away from the traditional style of event Poster.

I’m guessing there’s new young blood in in the Marketing Dept at Zuffa .. after a 20 year run, it’s nice to see some fresh ideas come out of the Vegas based company.

The UFC and DC Entertainment companies collaborated to create unique, Special Edition UFC 181 poster. The UFC and DC Comics, the leaders in their respective fields, teamed up, producing art which captures the double main event of the December 6 Pay-Per-View event.

Inspired by DC Comics, this collaboration between DC’s pencil artist Howard Porter, colorist Alex Sinclair and the UFC creative team, the UFC 181 artwork depicts double main event stars Johny Hendricks. Robbie Lawler, Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez, in truly iconic, one-of-a-kind artwork. The artwork will be used in all key creative elements surrounding the UFC 181 event, including the official event poster, program and other promotional materials.

Dana White; “This is a really cool collaboration between two awesome companies. We worked with some of the top guys over there at DC Entertainment and I want to thank them for doing an awesome job.”

We the fans would like to thank you too!
